In an exhibition curated by Dr. Dieter Buchhart, in collaboration with Fondation Louis Vuitton, The Brant Foundation reconnects the work of Jean-Michel Basquiat with the East Village – the very spot he made his creative playground in the 1970s and 80s. Thirty years after his death, Basquiat’s ability to challenge social inequalities and institutionalized racism with pieces like Arroz con Pollo (1981) and Hollywood Africans (1983), makes this exhibition feel more timely than ever.

Simon Porte Jacquemus followed up last year’s lavender-field phenomenon with another catwalk show that swiftly went viral. The L’Amour collection (dedicated to the hard-working Jacquemus team) was presented in front of 100 socially distanced guests, in a dreamy wheat field one hour from the centre of Paris. Models walked the 600m wooden runway wearing a romantic assemblage of soft whites, beiges, navy, greys and pastels, with details of Picasso motifs and structured cut-outs.

In a 12-hour live stream from the Palazzo Sacchetti in Rome, Gucci takes us behind the scenes of their Epilogue collection. Epilogue marks the dénouement of creative director Alessandro Michele’s three-part “fairy tale”, described as a ‘trilogy of love’ – a radical break away from fashion’s traditional rules and a move towards a more liberated mode of creative production. Watch the on-site crew turning Michele’s vision into reality – a process that promises to be just as mesmerising as the final product.

On 22 July, Dior will broadcast its 2021 Cruise show live and direct from Lecce’s resplendent Piazza del Duomo. The decision to host the show in the Puglia region, homeland of creative director Maria Grazie Chiuri, and one of the areas worst affected by the Covid-19 crisis, was a deliberate one to help promote economic regrowth and highlight the region’s tradition of fine craftsmanship.
